Some believe it's possible to meditate into spiritual evolution, though often it's when a person is not even focused on spiritual development when evolution is the most profound.

Like star-crossed lovers, somehow Joni Mitchell and Saskatchewan got separated, each wanting to reach out and do the right thing, but somehow screwing it up. #opinion   #arts

"Many big Canadian cities have lower crime rates and less serious crime than we do. For a city that aspires to be the next Calgary, Saskatoon's crime rate looks a lot like Winnipeg's, and that isn't a good thing," Jordon Cooper writes in today's column. #opinion  
As I came home after work last Monday evening and our children were in the front yard, a violent assault took place across the street from where we live.

The skies above Saskatoon are predicted to be clear of clouds and full of sunshine today, however, widespread smoke in the air will make it difficult to judge. #news

Though 16 per cent of Saskatchewan's population identify as aboriginal, fewer than five per cent of the province's doctors are aboriginal. Slowly, that's changing. Here's why it matters. ‪ #news   #health   
Growing up in Prince Albert, Cora Mirasty was never treated by an aboriginal doctor.

It was a different season at a different venue under different circumstances - and the injury looked and felt so painfully familiar.   #sports

We are Saskatoon's daily newspaper
Introduction

On Friday, October 17, 1902, G. Wesley Norman and his brother, Leonard, tugged at their Washington hand press to produce 1,000 copies of Saskatoon's newspaper, The Phoenix. The weekly was produced in a small frame building on 21st Street.

The paper was then bought and sold a couple of times and was reborn in 1907 as the Daily Phoenix. It was published three times a week until 1909 when it became a daily and was renamed the Saskatoon Capital in 1910.

In 1912 the paper was sold again to W. F. Herman and Talmage Lawson and its name was changed from the Capital to the Saskatoon Daily Star.

During the 1920's a series of sales and purchases between newspaper owners in Saskatoon and Regina left Saskatoon with two daily papers, Saskatoon Daily Star and The Daily Phoenix.

Then, on January 1st, 1928, the Sifton family, publishers of the Winnipeg Free Press bought and amalgamated the papers to form the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix.

The Siftons owned the paper until it was purchased by Hollinger Newspapers in 1996. Hollinger was purchased by CanWest Global Communications Corp. in 2000. The StarPhoenix is now a division of Postmedia Network Inc.
